I have been programming since I was in high school, and my favorite computer was my Amiga 2000, as that is what I learned to program in C on, and was just a great computer.

I have been an advocate about unit testing since 1999, and believe we can get better code by getting before the user more frequently so we can narrow the solution to what they really want, as users don't really know what they want, initially.

I am comfortable with many languages, but am trying to understand how to program in functional languages, giving up while loops is very difficult for me in designing applications. :)

I am living in Knoxville, TN.

comment Defending your honor against a superior who accuses you falsely
Ask yourself why it is important to defend yourself. Is it pride? Does defending yourself glorify God?

comment What is the theological background of the WWJD movement?
It is a feel-good movement that not only isn't backed by Scripture, but by observing the followers, they aren't necessarily following the question. If you read the risks taken by the characters in "In His Steps", by Charles Sheldon, you will see that doing what Jesus would do would change many aspects of the lives of basically everyone, and really annoy people around us.

comment Can these three “2nd greatest commandments” be put into one sentence?
@JimThio - Why are they enemies? It may be that we need to be more Christ-like and find a way to love them. It is easy to hate, love is harder.

comment Can these three “2nd greatest commandments” be put into one sentence?
@JimThio - You don't pray for either side to win, but for God's will to be done, and if possible protect our troops, but praying that the terrorists are killed is wrong, as Jesus died for them as he died for us. Pray always that we are available to do God's will, and that we accept it, though we may feel it is wrong, much as Jonah didn't want to go to Ninevah because he wanted them to be destroyed, and if he went they would repent. he didn't want to help God, but in the end he agreed to.

@JustinY - I may edit it, or someone else can, but basically, Moses didn't want to be the leader, but he succeeded because of God.

comment In the parable of the sower, what exegetical reasons are there to interpret the third type of soil to be genuine Christians?
+1 - Nice using the next few verses. So it may not apply to Christians, but just to people that have heard, but had other priorities.
